1 pint 9 oz. bottle poured into a Duvel Tulip style glass. Liquid comes out black and stays that way the whole way through. A reasonably aggressive pour gives a dark brown head that gives sort of a Guinness nitro looking effect. Once it settles a bit it gets a dark tan creamy color, very good looking. This beer produces a crazy amount of lacing. People trying to make stouts should use this as a prime example and all would be well with the world!

Smell is really good, slightly sweeter than I expected. Coffee is a dominant feature (as expected) but it's not alone here. Black coffee, bittersweet chocolate hints of vanilla and alcohol (maybe bourbon or whiskey). I didn't expect any vanilla aromas but it was very nice. I don't even think you need to be a coffee drinker to like how this one smells. Once it get closer to room temperature you can detect a slight hop presence.

The taste portion is absolutely incredible. An absolute ton of flavors blended together to the final amazing product. Big helpings of espresso, dark coffee and bittersweet chocolate. Vanilla isn't as strong as it is in the smell but still there. I've cellared this bad larry for about 11 months now, but there's actually still a hop presence in the flavor, strong and earthy.

Mouthfeel is good, it's a slightly thinner consistency than I expected, it's ok though, not all stouts need to be chewy, this is a nice change of pace. It's got a good carbonation level and is silky smooth.

Overall this is an absolutely an amazing beer. Mikkeller really takes this beer to a new level. Any body who loves coffee and loves beer than Beer Geek Brunch Weasel is an absolute MUST. I know Civet droppings are a big ingredient here, but I'm now beginning to see the delicacy here. Good Job Mikkeller!

look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

Poured from 16.9oz bottle into Bordeaux glass.

Aroma: Mocha, fruity raspberry, dry, roasty coffee, malted milk, some tart alcohol/fruitiness, and even a little bit of vanilla. The best aroma on a coffee stout that I've smelled.

Appearance: Thick, dark tan, frothy, 2 finger head. Pitch black expresso body. Nice, sticky lacing.

Flavor: A very nice, highly complex rich, roasty chocolate/coffee flavor. Strong, but not overwhelming bitterness. No acidity/tartness as the aroma led me to anticipate. The booze is very well hidden in this one.

Mouthfeel: Medium-full viscosity. Creamy carbonation. Sheets of fine bubbles coat the inside of the glass.

Overall: The best coffee flavor I've had in a beer. At first, I have to admit some apprehension in trying this one, based on it being brewed with civet coffee. Weasel poop or not, the coffee flavor is out of this world! Very highly recommended!

A- pours dark with a finger and a half of dark tan head. Decent head retention.

S- great coffee aromas with a semi-sweet chocolate aroma. Middle is burnt caramel with a smooth roast malt note. Finishes with a latte creamy finish.

T- semi-sweet chocolate and robust coffee. Oily coffee bean with a latte creamy character in the middle. Dark caramel with a smooth grain and roasty long lasting finish.

MF- smooth velvety mouthfeel with a medium body and light soft carbonation.

D- great drinkable.

Overall the beat of the beer geeks!

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured into a tulip.

A: Thick viscous black pour with a half inch of milk chocolate head. Small sheets of lace form.

S: Not as much coffee as I was expecting here, but still present - maybe just a different smell. Sweet chocolate and a bit of roasted malts.

T: Strong roasted coffee and malt flavors here. Alcohol is fairly well hidden. Dark chocolate and a nice bitterness round it out.

M: Moderate to low carbonation and the feel gets creamier as it warms.

D/O: I held on to this one for ~3 months before trying it, so I might need to revisit this one fresh to get a better feel of the coffee. Overall a good Imp Stout, but not extraordinary.
